through where things are beginning with libya. where this appeared to begin. what do we know about the derivation of these protests and what caused it? >> i think right now, the administration has backed off -- initial impression this might be connected with al-qaeda. there are reasons we can go into why that was a plausible conjecture. it appears to have been it was a group, unlike al-qaeda is not a transnational group. it is a libyan extremist islamist, armed group. therefore, very dangerous to libya. and from everything we can tell, they either opportunistically seized on this or caused it to happen. it's quite different from cairo in the sense it's not even clear there was a spontaneous gathering of a crowd there at all. clearly, there was a decision at some point by ansar says is a rogue group. there was a decision to use the incident as a kind of cover to carry out what appears to have been a pre-existing plan to destroy the consulate. i doubt they knew the ambassador was there. >> eliot: because there were rock

, right? it's go time. >> well, what started in libya has caught literally on fire across the world. now our embassies are being attacked in egypt and in yemen as well, and not only the that, there are also protests in morocco and tunisia and these range to violent protests. >> we'll get to egypt in a second. libya might be a little different that you know realize. first, let me give you a report from nbc news. >> it was complex and preplanned likely for the anniversary of september 11. it was 10:00 at night in libya. heavily armed attackers began firing at the libyan security guards protecting the american consulate before setting the main building ablaze. inside ambassador stevens and others were trapped between the flames and gunfire. it was 12 hours before ambassador stevens body was returned by local libyans who had carried him to a hospital in an effort to save him. >> from the outside it looks like what happened in linea is the worst. four americans died, our ambassador died. it might give you the false appearance that they are the most anti american. that is not true. in eastern
following the mob assault in libya. following an exclusive story stewart stevens is taking internal heat for the problems, and a campaign structure that has him acting as chief strategist speechwriter all at once. and taking heat about president's supporters earlier this year at a private fundraiser released today on the internet by mother jones. >> eliot: perhaps romney doesn't think that the 47% of the american people that he derides includes any of the people he says he wants to help in the latest ad. >> my plan is to help the middle class. trade has to work for america. that means crackdown on cheaters like china. >> eliot: at issue president obama tried to take away from romney in an ohio campaign speech. >> obama: today, launching a new action against china. this one against illegal subsidies that encourage companies to ship auto parts manufacturing jobs overseas. we're going to stop it. it is not right. it is the against the rules, and we will not let it stand. >> eliot: romney is also repeat lid attacked the president on another key foreign policy challenge, iran's nuclear progra
. and then he completely bungled his response to the libya situation and that didn't help. but then came the biggest mistake of all. that embarrassing 47% rant caught on tape. now, national polls are not always the best way to understand the state of the election. and for that, you've got to go to the swing states. and sorry mitt, but the pictures there are not much better. a "new york times" cbs quinnipiac poll shows that big margins exist among likely swing state voters. in pennsylvania, the president is up big. 54% to romney's 42%. he leads romney 53% to 44% in florida and in ohio, he leads by a full 10 points! 53% to 43%. the last one is really important because if history is any guide the road to th does run through ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without winning the state of ohio. no democrat has done it for over a half a century. so both candidates are in the state today and not believe me, for the first time. in fact, they have made these two candidates a combined 68 visits there this year. but

libya? if you pull that raving lunatic aside and said this is muslim this is one showing to ten people. this doesn't even come close to equaling america. i heard there is a rear view mirror center libya that is widely watched movie in america. nobody even knew about it until you guys started doing your protest. it had no viewers. it does not equal america. then how about big blow hards like rush limbaugh who says outrageous things whether it's about our president or muslims. he does not equal america. even loudmouths on the other side like this guy also does not equal america. okay? that is not how the country works. we need to communicate that to the muslims across the world. they think in our country if you offend religion or us you get arrested. that's not how we work in this country. you want us to respect your culture, you have to respect our culture. that goes to point number two. if you say you're muslim and you don't drink--i don't know, you don't drink beer or eat bacon. you say i'm not going to drink beer. fine, don't drink it. i'm not muslim. i'll drink beer. you say you don
's attack in libya? >> you know, actually, jennifer, they were more than silent during that time. and they were unbelievably unifying. they talked about how important it was at times of international crisis to be together, the rhetoric for both george h. w. bush and ronald reagan was not at all political. in fact, george h. w. bush said we're not going to politsize things like this. this is a time for us to come together. and not only did mitt romney try to politicize this as you point out, in a panicked kind of way but you know -- a time limit on this, he was going to have it released at 12:00 midnight then he called the press and said look, i want to make the late news and i want to make the morning papers. so this embargo is lifted. you can take the statement at 10:30. so that showed people how he was trying to take what was a terrible tragedy and turn it into his own political advantage to. me, the guy is tone-deaf. you don't know that that's not going to come back to haunt you? >> jennifer: for sure. tone-dea
to reboot his campaign. after the crisis of libya where he made himself look inept in foreign policy issues. now this. he was supposed to give specifics. when will we get specifics and when there will there be an affirmative message that we can construct the campaign. >> it's areel hard to remember the last time the romney campaign had a good day. you know, something where he wasn't tripped up or thrown off message. i suppose you could say every time a jobs report comes out and it's not good news, that's a good day for the romney campaign. but a day where he did something that made things good for him is hard to remember. the thing you have to keep in mind is that things keep getting worse for romney. they don't keep getting better for obama but by default. the president has been invisible because romney has hogged the spotlight with his mishaps. that's always been the winning formula for the romney campaign. when all the attention is on romney they win. you have to imagine obama gets dragged back into the frame and he has to have something to do with the selection as well. >> eliot: the fo

in florida right now, at 48 to 44%. president clinton is also taking a stance on libya and egypt yesterday they attacked in both countries killing an officer of the state department all because of a u.s. film they say was offensive to islam. clinton said there is never any excuse for this kind of violence. president obama and mitt romney are also trading jabs over the attacks. romney is calling the obama administration disgraceful. and team obama said they are disappointed that romney would turn this into a political event when the nation is still dealing with the death of one of itself officers. all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >>you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. >>sharp tongue, quick whit and above all, politically direct. >>you just think there is no low they won't go to. oh, no. if al gore's watching today... what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025, we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at d
. i want to ask you, dean about libya today, because it just seems like things are getting more and more ugly. we know they are trying to make arrests in libya for these senseless murders. >> yes. >> john: but i was moved by the photos on buzzfeed of people holding up signs saying they want peace. >> it's true and mitt romney criticized them. [ laughter ] >> what is -- i mean that -- and the images not on buzzfeed i saw them on facebook with libbians holding up signs, this is not what islam is about. the people who now run the government have been enboldened by u.s. support and nato support. some of this is media spin. yemen erupts and 2,000 protesters out of 25 million people. >> john: i heard that the cairo protest was not that huge of mob as well -- >> cairo was truly symbolic. >> when there's anti-war protests in america those don't get covered by the media. >> these are things that sell papers, there are protests going on in egypt that are very peaceful. if the american ambassador and workers were not killed it would just be a protest in the middle ea
gunfire -- >> john: there certainly was in libya, dean. >> right. i'm saying that libya is the exception. so it seems there probably is some truth to that. the attackers could have been using it as a cover, using religion as a reallilying point which is not unique in the middle east, it is used as an motivator around the world, so terroristing or government official using religion is very very powerful. i was emailing you last night in lebanon, the head of hezbollah has called for protests on monday. that's when you have an organic protest you call for it four days later. the organic outrage by some muslim [ inaudible ], but fit was a truly outraged by the muslim community they would have been in the street instantlies. instead the pope had been there for three days and they were very respectful, so now they say we're going to have a big protest across the country today. that attack in libya seems to be a terrorist attack calculated and i believe there were some attacks earlier on un sites in libya earlier in the day. so this might be their way a

, they have telephones in the white house. last week we talked to the leader in libya. >> cenk: look meeting with foreign leaders has nothing to do with whether he'll get elected or not elected, fund raises which they all have time for, that has a lot to do with the election. they'll make time for the media and the "the view" is very important for the female demographic. so that's part of it. and what he hasn't met with netenyahu enough? >> believe me he has met with them plenty of times and knows exactly where the prime minister stands. what did they discuss on "the view"? they discussed libya, and what they would do after the presidency if he won a second term, and apparently michelle obama said go on a long vacation. i don't blame her. president obama joked around that he was there to be eye candy. and joy behar tweeted about mitt romney and his reluctance to appear on the show . . . damn maybe that's what mitt romney is referring to when talking about her sharp tongue. in fact we talked to joy behar earlier today and asked her about that. first let me play you th

this ambassador was beloved by both parties. he risked his life to help bring freedom to the people of libya, and he gave his life in that same service yesterday. i respect that governor romney is running a hard campaign he has a lot of steak, but i always thought after a national tragedy isn't that when all americans are supposed to come together. i remember after 9/11 democrats really did not feel inclined to go after president bush for a time. i was surprised he didn't play more of a leadership role and stand with the president. >> that's exactly right. there's a contradiction in political life. it's hard fought, no holds barred, it is combative, but there also has to be some civility and some limits on what you do because you have these limits because you know that we as a country need to work together and succeed. and one of the limits has been just as you describe it when there has been a tragedy, that we have all calmed down and focused on the loss and acknowledged the service of those that we have lost, and -- so i have never seen anything like this by a majo

while we're -- in a time of risk when we have people over in egypt and libya you know, their lives are at stake and she's making a political statement about it, people are ready for somebody that isn't just looking for the rock star. somebody who isn't trying to creating jocks and solutions for the -- creating jobs and solutions for the district. >> jennifer: what are your polls telling you, do you actually have a chance? >> oh, yeah, definitely. polls tell us if the people get to know me, we win this election. right now, we're neck and neck. we're virtually in a tie. our i.d., our identification of who i am, what i stand for is going up every day. every day goes up, we pick up all of the persuadables, all of the independents that are looking for something different looking for a real solution. >> jennifer: that's encouraging. moderate republicans should be yours for the taking. i want to play a clip from your latest campaign ad. >> after the fire at the mill, michele bachmann never called the workers. >> didn't r
attack on the u.s. consulate in libya should be a wakeup to denounce extremism of all kinds. >> obama: we cannot solve every problem in the world the united states has not and will not seek to dictate the outcome of democratic transitions abroad. >> stephanie: he -- i thought -- >> translation i'm sorry i'm sorry, i'm sorry. that's what fox and friends are saying this morning. i'm sorry we're so -- we're not awesome enough. >> apology continues. >> apologize for america being not awesome. >> stephanie: i thought he struck a perfect line. he said today we must affirm our future will be determined by people like chris stevens not by his killers. today we must declare this final incidence of tolerance has no place among our united nations. he pleaded to his condemnation of the anti-muslim youtube clip saying it does not reflect the views of the u.s. government. he paired that with middle east leaders condemning tolerance among christians, jews within their own countries. i thought that was the perfect line to wal
♪ ] >> cenk: muslims in egypt and libya and all across the world are angry about this movie called "innocence of muslims." we'll show you a couple of pieces why they're deeply offended and what nonsense this movie is. watch. >> put your head between my thighs. do you see the devil still? >> yes. [ sobbing ] >> cenk: it is one of the most poorly acted movies, and that is muhammed right there that they're showing. they're not supposed to show muhammed. why am i showing a piece of it? i don't care if it offends the religious. i am not religious. i don't have to listen to your rules. i'm not muslim. why do i care if i think muhammed should be depicted or not. it doesn't mean that the argument doesn't have any intellectual argument to make. here they are accusing the muhammed of pedophilia. >> we shall loot the goods and anything else. >> what about the children, master? you know, some of us-- >> use whom you wish of the children. the rest shall be sold as slaves for more horse as soon as if if you want to do a takedown of islam there is nothing wrong with it. it should be perfectly fine thing to
we just went through in libya. >> john: exactly. sandie, tell us where people can follow you. >> i have sandie richards.com. follow me on twitter at sandie richards. it is with an i-e sandie, i-e not a y. you know, i'm so proud of secretary clinton and i want to talk about also susan rice who is our u.n. ambassador and both of these women are doing all they can to keep the world safer for women. because believe me, if mitt romney's end game is he wants to get elected president then go to work against what? libya or egypt or what does he want to do? with what army. because as a pastor, there are methodist soldiers who can't even return to church because of what they have seen and what they have been through. it distances them from the rest of us. and it has. they're so traumatized. it is just heartbreaking. >> john: we'll be right back with lots more on "the stephanie miller show." thank you sandie. lot of the things about the election is overanalyzed and i feel that a lot of people, they're going to vote for w
made a fool of himself pouncing on the tragedy in libya. >> bill: so the -- we talked mainly about -- and i guess the real meat of the video is mitt's comments about the 47%, right? and it was just incalculatable to the romney campaign? and you realized this was the nugget? >> right. republicans complain half of americans don't pay taxes all the time, even though it is misleading. mitt romney characterized 47% of the country as people who don't want to take care of themselves or their lives. that's shocking to see somebody who wants to be president dismiss half of the country as freeloaders. >> bill: we want to think they care about everyone. reaching out and fighting for every american. which is the point president obama made last night on the david letterman show. and certainly it seems if you are campaigning for president you would expect them to reach out to everybody. >> right. that's what is so shocking about it. and why mitt romney isn't out on the campaign trail saying half of the country sucks, which he said in this closed doors fund raiser. and this i
romney were asked after the attacks in libya you struck out immediately with what appeared to be an overtly political response. should you have demonstrated some reserve? you think he's going to be afraid of that question. how should he respond? >> i think it was a pivotal moment in the campaign. we had a foreign policy crisis and there's been a traditional notion that politics stops at the water's edge. he and his campaign had a very trigger response to that that looked very political. i think -- i think it shifted a lot of people -- we're looking to see how he would act as president. i think what he's going to do, i think what he's likely to do, in this case, the environment favors a sort of response. where in this case he can double down. he's going to say you know, what i was concerned about was people's lives and it was and is a dangerous situation and it is deteriorating further as we see now. and so what we need in our diplomacy and at a time like this is not reserve. but we need bold action to make s
